Publisher's Description

Contextualization is the art of translating ideas into a particular situation, place or culture. It is fundamental to communication, which makes contextualization essential in missions. This textbook pulls together and maps the variety of evangelical approaches to contextualization. Introductory classes on contextualization and missionary preparation institutes will appreciate this valuable textbook.

In section one, Moreau explores foundations that make it possible to see the variety of evangelical models more clearly. He looks at the ways evangelical models have been characterized in the literature, and he highlights the main concerns of evangelicals in their contextualizing efforts. Moreau explains several guiding ideas and analytic tools that show how evangelicals "lean into" contextualization.

In section two, Moreau describes how evangelical models of contextualization can be split into six primary categories based on the role the initiator: facilitator, guide, herald, pathfinder, prophet and restorer. For each initiator role, Moreau explains the role, portrays one or more models from the category, and presents selected contextual practices that evangelicals use which fit the category. This arrangement makes categorization easier than other options and does not frame the models in ways that bias their evaluation.

Contextualization in Missions will guide mission-minded to an informed plan for spreading the gospel effectively. While written with a theoretical perspective, Contextualization in Missions also provides real-world examples to provoke both thought and action.

    Scott Moreau, professor of Intercultural Studies at Wheaton College has written a comprehensive, heavily researched and helpful resource which identifies and analyzes the history and current landscape of evangelical contextualization.

    While this is clearly an academic book intended for college or seminary students the author provides help along the way to assist the reader in digesting and thinking through the information. Each chapter includes the following: overviews, outlines, and key words, resources for further study and questions for reflection. While most readers may feel like they are wading through peanut butter these are of help.

    The book is divided into two sections, the first section deals with the foundations of contextualization and the second section deals with the mapping models of contextualization.

    The author uses "mapping" as a means to help the readers gain a clear understanding of contextualization whether applied locally or globally. He defines mapping as "involving exploring territories, drawing boundaries, identifying terrain, comparing size, climate, topography, environment, and so on". The end result is a product, a map to help us "evaluate contextual methods, processes, and products".

    In my thinking the author's effort to boil down the extensive library of information dealing with this subject is nothing short of impressive. While you will most likely labor to gain a clear understanding of the terms used in the book and to keep everything correctly organized in your analysis of the information I believe you will find the book helpful. I believe those who are interested in the philosophical underpinning of the various Missional approaches will also find this work worthwhile. If you are looking for a resource that provides a comprehensive overview of the evangelical thinking on contextualization this book should be of benefit.

    Kregel Academic Publications provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my review.
